, even though it's good for iron, if we eat too much of anything, it's not going to be good for us. so again, use logic in deciding how you handle your pregnancy. i needn't tell you, i needn't tell anybody that alcohol's not going to be good in pregnancy. i needn't tell anyone that using illicit drugs is not going to be healthy for your pregnancy. because ultimately that baby, if the mom uses regularly enough and in high enough quantity, the baby will become dependent on the drug in the same way that an adult would. in the wall of the lining of the uterus, there's a hormone that plays a very important role in the developing brain. so this is a signal from the mother that plays a role in how the baby's brain develops. so clearly speaking, we're talking about a drug, alcohol, that affects the mother's metabolism, where that signal doesn't get delivered to the fetus to allow normal brain development. in the last five to seven years, the rates have started to climb back up again in terms of women drinking while they're pregnant. it's the more highly educated, the more high income, typicall

. zeno of elea, who predated aristotle, wrote a series of paradoxes that still give us pause today. one of the best known tells the story of achilles and the tortoise and their race. achilles is such a fast runner, he gives the tortoise a head start. they each run at constant speeds: achilles very fast, the tortoise very slow. after a finite amount of time, achilles gets to where the tortoise started, but the tortoise will have moved on. it takes achilles a finite amount of time to get to the tortoise's next spot, but by the time he arrives, the tortoise will have moved on from there as well. and so on, and so on, over and over again, ad infinitum. despite what our senses tell us, zeno is telling us that achilles will never catch the tortoise. zeno's paradoxes were a big problem for the greek philosophers, and they did just about everything they could to avoid confronting the infinite because they based their arithmetic and their entire worldview on something much more tangible: geometry. their notion of the mathematical and the physical was intimately linked to the practice of measurin

capable of language, creativity, and thought. the differences among us lie in our cultures, our beliefs, how we organize our societies and how we make our living. humans have populated every environment on earth. we live on the frozen tundra and in the searing deserts. we live in thriving cities of millions and in isolated camps of a few dozen. some societies seem simple because they are small and their members are self-sufficient and use simple tools. others seem complex because they have large populations and people depend on each other for food and goods and use sophisticated technology. in between, there is a range that fills the spectrum. all of these differences are cultural, learned behavior, the result of a complex interaction between our inventiveness and our natural environments. as we search for new horizons, our inventiveness thrusts us across the boundaries of space, into new worlds. this new view of earth dispels an ancient myopia -- the artificial boundaries of our states and the politics that often divide us. here is a vision of one planet and one family of humankind. bu

actor or director or playwright or audience member, all of us share in that special moment, that special magic, the here and now event which can only take place within the specialized conditions of theater. you hear a lot about what theater really is. in fact, the comparison most often heard has to do with a mirror. the comparison, of course, is borrowed from shakespeare, when hamlet says, "to hold as 'twere a mirror up to nature." for many, theater is a reflection of life, an imitation. now, certainly, there can be a mirroring effect in the theater. as with any artist, if the dramatist or playwright holds up a mirror to nature, it is the mirror of that individual's own mind. what is reflected is a specialized point of view quite as unique as that same artist's fingerprint. the art of theater, however, encompasses much more than can be reflected in the mirror. think of it for a moment not as a mirror but rather as a prism. a prism reflects light, breaking it down into component parts, casting first this image, merging with another image, this shadow, that shadow, this color, that color.

? deprived childhood is-- well, most of us have looked at such things, right? let me ask you a question. how strong you suppose that ant is? strong or strong-strong? strong-strong. compared to-- for sure? compared to what? good point. let's suppose this happens, gang. an elephant walks to this door. the elephant is gonna start lifting up logs. a door over here, an ant walks through that's just as big as the elephant, a super ant. this super ant is been-- [makes sounds] --i don't know how it's been done, science fiction, okay? scaled up. and it scaled up, so, that ant-- [makes sounds] --the same size as the elephant. now, they're gonna have a contest to see who can lift a greater load. who are you gonna be betting on? elephant. ants. check your neighbor. is there anyone in here says, "honey, the ant can't even do push ups. the elephant is the one that's the strongest." show of hands. all right. these are my people. these are the people who have read the book. the rest of you guys come in for a free lunch today, right? what's that thing all about, yeah? come on. that ant couldn't make it. the

the time but we be knowing enough physics to figure out what the time is. see how many of us can figure out how long is that ball in the air. let me make it easy, let's suppose the dude just took the ball and drop it. how long would it be in the air, beginning with a w. - one. - one. but now he ain't dropping it. he's throwing it sideways. check the person sitting next to you and see if the person sitting next to you is any resource in this problem. how many say it's one second? show our hands. that's right, it's one second, gang. 'cause if it's gonna take one second for something to fall five meters and you toss it out, it's still five meters vertical. it's like this thing over here. if this is five units down, this one comes out, it's still five units down stretched out, huh? so it's gonna take one second. so 25 meters divided by 1 second gives you 25 meters per second. isn't that neat? there's some good physics there, gang. do you like? let me ask you a question. would the ball be in the air for a longer time if there were a hill le this? yes. would the ball be in the air for a longer ti

orders. i make strong suggestions. i think if only one of us is to be in charge, it ought to be me. you're in the kitchen most of the day, hidden away, out of view, where you should be. i'm sorry, but i don't know if i can work here if you are the boss. i'm positive that i can't work here if you're the boss. - i know. maybe jamal can be the boss. - what ? weren't you in charge of a bunch of people back in egypt ? well, yes, but-- you know, that's not such a bad idea. i agree. that is a good idea. i am honored. that even sounds like mr. brashov. - but i must turn down your offer. - oh, no. why ? my wife is out of town on business this week, and i've got my hands full with the baby. so, then, who should be in charge ? we know it can't be henry. he's too young to be a boss, and he only works part-time. i'll change my schedule if i can be the boss. not on your life. i had a hunch you might all show up early today. what ? you have been unanimously elected to be in charge of crossroads cafe. - wait ! wait ! - no way. i'm retired, remember ? these old b

inertia and i use a capital "i". and if i put proper units in, i can call it an exact equation. so how much rotational acceleration you're gonna get something to pick up, huh? will depend upon how much torque you put on it, but how much rotational inertia does that something have. it turns out that rotational inertia is complicated. and we're just gonna get the idea of it today. rotational inertia is mr2, the mass multiplied by the distance from the rotational axis when the mass is localized. ordinarily, for different shapes, it's a more complicated equation and we won't get into that, but i can kinda show you that with this idea. here i've got a couple of plastic pipes and in these pipes, i've got some lead. and i'll tell you, the same amount of lead in each one. could i have a helper, please? my helper today gang, this is tinnie lim. she is the lady in that energy chapter who is pulling the bow and arrow back. tinnie was my student at city college in san francisco in 1980. got into conceptual physics, it spurred her on. today, she is a design engineer at jet propulsion labs in califo
